The performing arts use theatrical creativity and discipline as teaching and learning methods. Pupils develop their creativity, motivation, memory, concentration, postural control, rhythm and autonomy. This education benefits their quality of life and improves their capacity to learn other educational subjects.
The pupils at the Psico Ballet school are pupils with or without disabilities who begin their artistic training from the age of three years old, and with no upper age limit. The groups are organised chronologically according to age with a maximum of 15 pupils in each class. The Psico Ballet School continually seeks creative capacity, personal development and quality of life for its pupils through personalised programmes and a direct triangular relationship between the foundation, the families and the schools or occupational workshops that the pupils attend.
The Psico Ballet school has a team of psychologists who carry out personalised monitoring of each pupil's progress, a coordinating team for each subject and a teaching team which has been trained by FPBML and which has a wide experience in social theatre. Each class is taught by two teachers.
The foundation offers supplementary training in music (musical instruments), singing, circus and specific techniques for dance-theatre throughout the year or in specific workshops either in the morning, afternoon or at the weekend.
